The Most Dramatic Color Changing Paint Available!
While color change paint have been available for many years, SpectraFX takes “color shifting ” to a whole new level. Traditional color-changing paints create a swirl of different colors when you look at them from different angles. SpectraFX is different from these paints in that it creates a true “chameleon” color shift from 1 distinct color to another. This controlled color shift creates a much more dramatic effect, so that 2 people looking at the same object will see two completely different colors.
This dramatic color shift is the result of special, patented crystal flakes instead of color pigments used in traditional color-changing paints. And Alsa has put the creative control of these amazing crystal flakes in the consumers hands, by selling the flakes themselves instead of pre-mixed paints. So you are free to add them to any type of clear paint or coating you would like and you can also adjust the amount of flakes used to change effects.
And, by selling the flakes instead of pre-mixed paints Alsa is able to pass along significant savings to its customers. So your favorite clear paint or coating enhanced by SpectraFX flakes ends up costing a fraction of the price of other color changing paints, which can run thousands of dollars per gallon.

Q. Is SpectraFX a paint?
SpectraFX is actually a powdered flake additive which is available in a range of sizes from very small to extra large. (XL flakes are very big comparable to bass boat style flake.)
Q. What can it be put into?
The best part about SpectraFX is that it can be put into any carrier you choose, clear basecoats, innercoat clears, even your final clear.
Q. What color basecoat should I use?
A black basecoat will produce the color change labeled on the jar, (for example: copper/patina over a black base will give you a copper to green change.) But using a red base with the same flake will give you an entirely different set of colors.
Q. How much do I need to add?
Again here is where the versatility of SpectraFX shines. Depending on what color basecoat you choose to put it over you may want to use just a small amount, (for example 1 gr. per 5ounces of carrier.) However for the hardest or most radical flops we recommend using 1 gr. per ounce of carrier at this ratio only one coat is needed for complete coverage. NOTE! When adding to injection molding you will need about 5% by volume.
Q. Do I need a special gun to spray SpectraFX?
SpectraFX will not clog your gun as traditional metal flake does, however when spraying the XL flake we recommend using at least a 2.0 fluid tip.
Q. What colors are available?
As explained earlier there are thousands of color combinations possible with just the two colors copper/patina and blue/emerald by changing the background color.
